(AP) A woman charged in the death of an immigrant who was pushed off a New York City subway platform has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.


Erika Menendez was arraigned Saturday night on a charge of murder as a hate crime. Judge Gia Morris has ordered that the 31-year-old be held without bail and be given a mental health exam.


Menendez is charged in the death of Sunando Sen, who was crushed by a train in Queens on Thursday night.


Authorities say Menendez admitted shoving Sen, who was pushed from behind. She was arrested after a tip by a passer-by who saw her on a street and thought she looked like the woman in a surveillance video released by police.


A call to Menendez's attorney has not been returned.
